What You'll Like:

Situated near the top of the Bruce Peninsula, Cabot Head is a geologically significant area, featuring many interesting landforms. One of these is a section of limestone bedrock that geologists have called a superb example of a “karst pavement.” The rock in such a pavement has weathered through naturally occurring acids. Outcroppings of Queenston shale and Manitoulin, Fossil Hill, Amabel and Guelph limestones are also found here. The terrain is highly varied with cliffs, scree slopes, wet and dry rock pavements, ponds, swamps, marshes, and multiple types of shoreline.

Park Facilities and Activities: There are no visitor facilities. The park which consists of several unconnected sections, is part of the Niagara Escarpment Parks System and the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. The northern part of the park is located within the boundaries of Bruce Pennisula National Park.

Visitors are asked to remember that the natural features in the park are very fragile and easily damaged. Camping is not permitted.

Location: Near the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
